Recently it came to the attention of administration that there is a fundraising phone call claiming that Independence High School is raising funds for our Athletics Program. The phone number being used is 1.888.501.9227. This is not a legitimate effort on our part. While the scammers may be targeting businesses, please do not give any money or private information to the caller. If you do get a call, please contact administration at 1.408.928.9500 or send Liz Daniell an email with as much information as you can provide and she will forward it along.
Thank you so much!
